It's about the biggest work-related waste of time I've been involved in that doesn't involve clicking on cookies. (I do not deem Candy Box a waste of time because it's so rewarding an experience.)

I've been told to go to this New York State History conference in Albany and solicit books from the presenters. The presenters are mostly graduate students and amateurs, who do not have books to pitch to me. This has resulted in a kind of stalemate, in which I have decided to go home early. So go me, I guess.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

So, why have you been asked to do this if you know a priori that nothing will come of it? Does your boss refuse to listen to reason?

You register for the table before you know who's presenting things. So sunk cost fallacy / hope springing eternal. I did sell two books, and I got to enjoy some delicious Sodexho lard cookies.
